Bajaj Will Launch Its 1st Electric Bike To Challenge Revolt, TVS, Hero: Features, Price, Launch Date
Bajaj has filed a trademark application for the Freerider moniker in India.
The trademark application has been filed for the ‘Freerider’ name under Class 12.
Various automobiles, including electric ones, are covered in this class. Due to the fact that KTM already offers a lightweight electric motorcycle called the Freeride E-XC, it has been speculated that the Freerider might be Bajaj’s first electric motorcycle.
Bajaj Freerider Design And Features
The Bajaj Freerider is expected to use the same platform as the Husqvarna E-Pilen. Components such as the frame, suspension system, and braking system may be interchangeable.
The E-Pilen idea was first announced in April,2021 and soon it the production will commence. E-Pilen might be released as early as the end of this year or as late as 2022.
Svartpilen and Vitpilen have some features in common with the E-Pilen concept. Round headlamp, broad handlebar, contoured fuel tank with battery pack, and exposed trellis frame are just a few examples.
The design of Freerider is supposed to be snappy and sporty, in order to appeal to its target audience. The bundle will also include eye-catching graphics and decals.
Bajaj Will Collaborate With KTM!
Bajaj and KTM have been working together to establish a shared platform. It is expected to spawn a slew of electric two-wheelers ranging in power from 3 to 10 kW. The majority of these will be powered by a 48v system.
The E-Pilen concept’s electric powertrain is expected to be used in the Freerider. An electric motor with an output of 8kW (10.73 bhp) powers the E-Pilen. The motorcycle’s range will be around 100 kilometres, which should be sufficient for city use.
E-Pilen will be fitted with swappable batteries to alleviate range concern. The company appears to be concentrating on establishing the required infrastructure to support its electric two-wheelers.
